AniDB wrote:The Holy Grail War - A death-match between 7 magi (Masters) and their summoned heroic spirits (Servants) in which the prize is the legendary Holy Grail, said to have the power to grant miracles.

This is now the 4th Holy Grail War. The 3 preceding Wars had ended without a victor. In pursuit of their individual goals and ambitions, the magi congregate at a place called Fuyuki. All the magi will do anything, rationalize away any atrocity, in pursuit of the Holy Grail.

All of them, but one...

Kotomine Kirei is a mage, but one without a reason to fight. Unable to release himself from the threads of fate, he is drawn reluctantly into this War.

However, as fate would have it, one of his rival Masters turns out to be an old enemy, Emiya Kiritsugu, a man more severe and merciless than anyone else. A man who desires the miracles offered by the Holy Grail...

Okay I will admit I was a little worried at first for this production, but after just the first episode which is in all honesty the most boring part I was surprised.

All the characters are being flushed out fantastically imo.

Design is spot on its really nice to see the new typemoon sticking to their original character styles.

Music is spot on I will buy this OST when its released.

for me I think this will be the best show of the season, but my oppinion is biased here being a typemoon whore.

Spoiler :
It will be sad though so many scenes that will make a Heavens Feel version of fate/staynight obsolete which really sucks because the Fate and UTW routes where piss poor anyways.

Also.....this

agrees with above, I actually havnt done the heaven's feel route yet (not enough time). But I am loving this series, very happy with pretty much all aspects of the series. Also held off on reading the light novels which I do not regret, now I can enjoy the full anime experience without prior knowledge and then read the novels later.

Spoiler :
a little :shock: at how all the characters are related (literally). guess Illia has a reason to call Shiro Oni-chan since he's technically her step brother lol.

I love it as well as I loved Fate/Stay Night which I watched two weeks ago (so that I could follow this one)... I kind of don't like the fact that the first season kinda spoilers the second
ex.
Spoiler :
It was pretty obvious that Assassin was gonna die if they sent up agains Archer Gilgamesh since they said that that Priest lost his servent and hid at the church (said in first season 2nd ep or so)


Don't get me wrong... I love it :awesome:

You may be a typemoon whore, but I'm a typemoon concubine! HA! Yeah, we're bad people.

Spoiler :
I think I died a little inside during that caster scene in the second episode. You all may think I'm uninformed, but I had no idea who the hell Bluebeard was. I have since remedied that by looking up his story and Gilles de Rais, who he may of been based off of. Reading the wiki on him made me feel like I could never be happy again. He was pretty much the most evil bastard ever.

I don't know how long I can hold out. I give myself 2-3 more episodes before break down from anticipation and read the book.

I also thought it was interesting that Niconico is having live streaming of each episode and leaving them up for a week. It's a good step in the right direction to making anime more accessible to people outside of Japan. Here's a link if anyone is interested:

Fate/Zero

You have to fork over the cash for fullscreen. I might go premium if they ever get around to improving the quality. The live commenting system is fun though |:>

I took a few screenshots of it for kicks and giggles:

Don't worry, you can turn the commenting system off :ying:

dang it, why do these episodes have to end with cliffhangers, now gotta wait another week.

I have to say I am more and more impressed with the animation with each episode, definitely one of if not the best looking series this season, gotta find some decent music to use with this footage for a future amv

Spoiler :
And assassin is awesome, I heard a little background on "true assassin" before but it slipped my mind till this episode.

Havent posted, been waiting a little bit ( not really work and stuff)

Ok Lancer is pretty bad ass. Rider makes things really interesting, though giving away who is while makes sense for his character seems like a blunder to me still interesting though. Waiting to see how Kiritsugu actually fights the other magi.

Just wait for Beserker seriously once he starts his rampage it gets really really intense.

I have got to say that with the exception of Archer and Assassin (altho, I don't have the full picture about assassin yet) I love all other servents.
Lancer, Saber and Rider have really great character and Caster and Berserker are really awesome.
I never thought that berserker would be that nicely done. :)

I caught up to episode 5 last night, and I'm about to watch today's episode.
Can I just say that Castor/Bluebeard friggin' terrifies me?
Just from how he was introduced.
I will have nightmares.
NIGHTMARES.

But overall the show's nice; gorgeous animation, old favorite servants returning (Saber, always awesome. Gilgamesh, the loveable douche) etc. I'm also gaining a liking to the Rider servant. 'Seems like a fun sorta guy. xD

But yeah Castor creeps me right the hell out.
